Self-proclaimed liberal Jim Cramer is surprised to find his own have turned on him and are tearing into him with reckless abandon. In a scene reminiscent of the classic horror flick, Night of the Living Dead, Cramer is experiencing the business end of a feeding frenzy by the zombies on the left with an insatiable appetite for brains.
President Obama’s team, unlike Bush’s team, demonstrates a thinness of skin that shocks me. When I somewhat obviously and empirically judged that the populist Obama administration is exacerbating the crisis with its budget and policies, as evidenced by the incredible decline in the averages since his inauguration, I was met immediately with condescension and ridicule rather than constructive debate or even just benign dismissal. I said to myself, “What the heck? Are they really that blind to the Great Wealth Destruction they are causing with their decisions to demonize the bankers, raise taxes for the wealthy, advocate draconian cap-and-trade policies and upend the health care system? Do they really believe that only the rich own stocks? What do they think we have our retirement accounts in, CDs? Where did they think that the money saved for college went, our mattresses? Do they think the great middle class banks at the First National Bank of Sealy and only the wealthiest traffic in the Standard & Poor’s 500?”
They exacerbated their insensitivity when President Obama proclaimed that he wasn’t worried about the averages, dismissing them as traffic polls that go up and down in the short term. Ah, if only they went up occasionally and not down endlessly then I would believe the President’s logic.
Don’t get me wrong, Obama was dealt a terrible hand by the previous croupier. But this administration’s handling of the banking crisis, something that has brought Citigroup, Bank of America, Wells Fargo and even JPMorgan Chase to their knees, has been devastating. The indecision of Geithner, who has floated to the media every single idea in his head, only to announce none orally, has created a vacuum that has allowed short-sellers to dictate policy.
As you can see from the above quote, Cramer is exhibiting some brains and we all know what happens when zombie leftists smell brains: they get hungry!
